HC Deb 06 February 1945 vol 407 cc1919-20W
Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware of the administrative difficulties caused by the mixing of Army and R.A.F. personnel in units of the Glider Pilot Regiment; and whether he will consider manning this regiment entirely with Army personnel or alternatively handing it over entirely to the R.A.F.

Sir J. Grigg

The Glider Pilot Regiment is part of the Army but for operational reasons it has been necessary to call upon the R.A.F. for help. It is likely that the minor administrative difficulties to which this has given rise will be overcome.
